I am highly suggestible. Which is why websites like Goodreads are bad for me. Anyway, I pre-ordered Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson from Books of Wonder, well, because Maureen said to. It will be signed and include stuff. So why not?!
In an email from Books of Wonder today, I discovered they have posted the first 78 pages of the book. Score! Already, I'm enjoying it. You can too, here.
Here's what I was thinking about, though. When I was younger, I read the hell out of scary books. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (here) was a favorite of mine. I read Christopher Pike and RL Stine. As I got older, I steered away from the ghosty stories, but I still enjoy them. I'm going into Name of the Star thinking it's a ghosty type story. So I hope to not be disappointed.
